I am studying Schubert Sonata in a-minor D784. I have a problem with the tempo in the 2nd movement.
In my scores (Wiener Urtext, thus, I suppose this is not a typo) the 2nd movement is written in Alla Breve with tempo marking Andante. To my feeling the Andante is only possible with respect to the quarter note and not with respect to the half note -- which it should be since the piece is in Alla Breve.
Since Schubert is quite "exact" with his tempo markings (e.g. first movement of the sonata is clearly in 4/4, although one could easily think it should be in 2/2, or Schubert Op. 90, D. 899, Gb major with the double-alla-breve tempo), I am not fully convinced that the Andante feeling is with respect to the quarter note in this movement.
Does anybody have any ideas about this?
